VPN Manager for OpenVPN - zomboided - 01-16-2016

Hello, this is a new add-on that makes it easy to use VPN connections from within OpenELEC

- Import .ovpn files for other VPN providers not supported
- Connect to VPN when Kodi starts and reconnect when necessary
- Connect to VPN before Kodi starts (LibreELEC only)
- Connect to different VPN profiles/locations (or disconnect entirely) depending on add-on in use
- Supports both UDP and TCP connections where available, using the default or user defined port
- Easy display and switching of profiles from a single button/remote key
- Display screen overlay of current system information from a single button/remote key
- Supported on OpenELEC 5 onwards, OSMC, other Linux based Kodi installs and Windows (see words in trouble shooting post below)

Looks really nice, where do I put the .ovpn files?

Probably a very newbie question :unsure:

Not a silly question, too me ages to understand how this all worked. The ovpn files install and update automatically when you set up the VPN provider and credentials.

Also, updated download link above to 0.0.7 which fixes a couple bugs and makes the notifications quiet (as it was annoying me with all it's bonging). You should uninstall 0.0.6 before rebooting and installing 0.0.7 (I had inconsistent results when I tried to update over an existing install)

Great job, thanks. I've just been trying VyprVPN free trial and working great. I've got a premium vpn with ibVPN so if you could add this provider to your VPN Manager I'll be very grateful :-)

Update :

I've add the ovpn file from ibVPN and working brilliant.

Fantastic addon, working great so far.
Thank you again.
Best Piotr.

Thanks for trying it out buddy. I appreciate you letting me know VyprVPN works too.

I got a free trial account for ibVPN this evening and have also gotten it to work too! I've added it in as a selectable option on the settlngs page with all of the profiles and am just making a couple bug fixes. Will have a new version ready in a couple days.
